What's planned for 2007? Has anyone found any information that can shared? Just curious. Thanks!
The 0.5L water bottle sits there just fine. I have absolutely no complaints about the cupholders' ability to retain their contents. The free space above them is not sufficient to admit the tallest shakes, especially if something is plugged into the lighter outlet.Grav said:You must be using a forty of Old E as the bottle. Theres no way that anything other than the biggest cup or bottle would feel even remotely secure in the factory cupholders.
Yeah, it kinda works if you put your smaller sized drink in there and pull up on the tab too. However, I don't think this is how the design was meant to work.CornMonkey said:here's another vote for cupholders working the way it should.
i just make sure i push whatever i'm drinking to the opposite side of that little tab as much as possible. bottled water, mcdonald's coffee, starbucks coffee, soda.... they all hold firm.
When placing the cups in the holder you take your finger and push up on the little lever to make it snug, it seems to work pretty well. Thing is you have to remember to do it everytime you take the cup out and put it back. Quite a hassel reallyRaffor said:The funny part is the cupholder even fit a can snug because the lever pushes it to the opposite site and holds it quite nice.
All what I really wanted to say is that I was surprised after reading all the mails that it actually worked for me. Maybe there are bottles that move around, so far I haven't seen anthing that would not fit. I agree though, that I am a minority here regarding my opinion about this topic... :roll:
I don't have to do it on my car. So, I suspect that something is not right with the spring which unfolds the flap/tab. It may be a common problem, because many people complain in the forums.monetnj said:Yeah, it kinda works if you put your smaller sized drink in there and pull up on the tab too.

How 'bout some 2007 information!!
Nice attempts, jebinc, buy your thread has been hi-jacked. I feel your pain, but have to admit, it's a little funny, no? :?jebinc said:Thanks for all the information on the 2007 model! Anyone have any thoughts on the 2006 cup holder that they would like to share with the group? :roll:
